When I first read this article, I wasn’t sure if it was from the Onion. When i saw the KLM video of a dag tracking down owners to lost items, the first thing that came to my mind was, “This has got to be a promotional video,” and it was. See cute video at the end of this article.
But it seems that Muslims are progressing in one direction and regressing in another.
It’s now permissible for Muslims to use toilet paper instead of just water. This isn’t at all that significant except that Muslims needed a religious leader to give permission. WND reports:
“In Turkey, the top religious authority, known as the Directorate of Religious Affairs or Divanet, proclaimed that though water is the preferred method of cleansing oneself after using the toilet, paper is now an acceptable alternative if a water source is unavailable, reports the nation’s Hurriyet Daily News.”
Using water for hygiene is not unusual. In fact, it’s quite fashionable. They’re called bidets. They are to be used after using toilet paper.
